PICTURES: Mata and De Gea welcome Herrera to Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United completed the signing of Ander Herrera today much to the joy and relief of fans and players alike.

Juan Mata and David de Gea, fellow reds and former Spain Under-21 teammates of Herrera was quick to welcome the midfielder to Old Trafford.

The trio were key components of Spain’s Under-21s squad that won the 2011 European Championships and Herrera scored Spain’s first goal in a final where Mata was named man of the match.

The addition of Herrera gives United a strong Spanish contingent as he joins Mata and David De Gea at the club. Of course, the next logical step is for Herrera to buy a house on the same street as Mata and De Gea.

The linking up of two players so technically gifted as Herrera and Mata is a mouthwatering concept for United fans and Herrera will be able to bridge the gap between defence and attack that has been so apparent in recent years.
